Most Common Keywords in Teal's Job Tracker in November 2021

90,000 jobs have been saved by Teal’s Job Tracker users so far. Whenever a job is saved to the Job Tracker app, we analyze the job descriptions and job titles so you know what keywords matter most.

Why Do Keywords Matter?

Employers use certain keywords in job listings: these can be considered hard skills, soft skills, or emphasis words. Knowing what these keywords are as well as how frequently they show up is essential to know what employers want to see in your resume. Adding the right keywords to your resume and emphasizing your qualifications can show that you are the best match for the position. Companies craft job listings to find the most qualified candidates, and including the right keywords will prove to them that you are.

This is how our Keywords Engine analyzes job descriptions: we look for keywords, emphasis words, and the frequency of these.

Top Skills In Job Descriptions

We found that the spread of soft and hard skills were comparable across job listings. Having a balance between technical skills and widely applicable hard skills can help you in any role.

In total, 7,500 companies were saved across all job listings.
